Daily Classroom Prayers
w/c 14 October 2019
This week, we are exploring the themes of the story in the Gospel of Luke when Jesus healed the ten lepers, and yet only one returned to say, “thank you”.
By thinking about a different aspect of the Gospel each day, children will reflect on their own needs, pray for the needs of others, and praise God for the good in their lives.
How to Lead
The prayers this week require children to have some familiarity with ‘The Ten Lepers’ story. A video of the Gospel is included in the video section opposite, or alternatively, you can read the text in Appendix 1. Before the first slide each day, either watch the video or ask a prompt question to remind children of the story.
- The Prayer Leader reads a commentary which helps children to think about a particular aspect of the story and asks children a question which applies the teaching to their own lives.
- The teacher should facilitate a short response time to this question, encouraging children to think outside of the box.
- The Prayer Leader asks children to reflect individually and commit to taking action.
- An extension option here is to have children write or draw during their reflections.
- Finish each day with the same simple prayer that the children will probably know by heart by the end of the week.
